Hossein Farmani : Steve McCurry / Steve’s House


It’s a very lovely story! It goes against all current intolerances :

Lucie Foundation founder Hossein Farmani left Iran for the US when he was 18 years-old. Now 62, he is back as a philanthropist. He is restoring three old houses in Kashan, an Iranian ancient city dating back to the Elamite Empire (c. 1210 – 1100 BCE). The first one has just opened as Steve’s House, a (free) museum with a comprehensive collection of American photographer Steve McCurry’s work. With local architects and photographers Hossein et Hassan Rowshanbakht, Farmani is now restoring another house that will become a photography center for local artists and photographers. The desert city of Kashan is two hours drive south of Tehran. It is becoming a tourist attraction for its large 18-19th century large houses which are being restored as hotels or by philanthropists like Hossein Farmani.
